About my 3D artwork

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 3, 2010, 11:25 AM

3D Art

Some people ask my about my 3D artwork, which program I use etc. Some others see my portraits of Second live avatars (SL): Well,  I make them with DAZ|Studio, technically there is no link between the two 3D worlds.

I play around with 3D programs since 1996/1997, basically with Bryce and Poser.
My new 3D Art work with DAZ|Studio started ends 2006.

Working with DAZ|Studio is like in Poser, usually you not create 3D models by your own,
you buy them ore use freebees and then morph, pose and texture them.

I never pretend my work in 3D with DAZ|STUDIO is «Art» like Rembrandt, Picasso.. is just something I do for fun. I mostly use pre-packaged or downloadable models. I texture them, morph them, pose them. Many art work like photographic, film, collage, theatre use «pre-packaged» models.. lol.. The point is not WHAT you use, the point is HOW you use.. .

It a little bit like a digital dollhouse. But no program can give you creativity...
It's like with the paint brush and a blank canvas... up to you what you want and can do...

It's sound easy, but If you want to do, what you really want to do, it's some work to do...

I usually use one up to three evenings to create one of my figures, to morph head and body like I want them to be, to choose and to change the skin, to find cloths who suits and change their textures how I want them.

(But sometimes the figures get alive and they do want they want....)

The same proceeder with the environments and the props.
I often change props or use them like the maker maybe not expect...
I sometimes also import obj-files and prepare them in a other 3D programs.
I make myself skies and backgrounds in Bryce. (The other way is also possible and sometimes better: To prepare the figures in DAZ|Studio, export them and and make the scene in Bryce.)

For my most characters I use as base figures Hiro 3 (H3), David 3 (D*), Victoria 4 (V4), Micheal 4 (M4), Hiro 4 (H4) and Genesis (V5, M5), all form DAZ.

I use DAZ|Studio (and my  and sometimes my brain) because
• is a free program
• is better and quicker handling for me then poser
• better rendering engine
• you can use all your poser stuff (except some materials (.mt5, .mt6)
• good mac support (I use a Mac computer, but works also fine on PC..)
• I get use to (the program you know is always the best...)
• Did a mention this? The program is free
